is the obama administration made a big mistake, don't pur see this. >> that's past history. we are not going to hold these people responsible. >> they should have. all right. speaking of the president, what's he up to today? hey, we will tell you when we come back. >> this is the full court press. "the bill press show," live on your radio and on current tv. [ music ] >> this is the bull press show. >> at the top of the next hour we will be talking to congressman michael quapano, head of the massachusetts congressional delegation. he represents the city of boston, and he will give us the latest on the investigation into that bombing at the boston mayorthon t meanwhile, peter, a little breaking news on that front. >> cnn has reported that they have found the lid to the pressure cooker. we know that this was a pressure cooker bomb on the roof of one of the buildings surrounding the marathon finish line. they are saying this is really a big deal. they already found parts of what looked like the bottom of it, charred and a mess but the lid on these things essentially ju
pelosi. and how much was passed and what was done. >> bill: in that first -- obama administration. do you see -- maybe a better chance because of the political political -- let's see realities facing the republican party? a better chance on immigration? >> well, i do think there is a better chance on immigration. i think at one point they have to decide which one are they going to do. i think when the republicans woke up the day after the election and realized latinos voted, i think that they -- >> bill: hello! did they ever! >> i think they had to come to grips with that reality. and so i think there is a better chance on immigration. we'll just have to wait and see. i sit on judiciary. i sat through, as a matter of fact, our first hearing was about immigration and it went on all day long. and what was very clear that day was that they could handle immigration reform up to citizenship. we will make you legal residents but we just can't go that far. i think donald trump was the one who told the truth. he went to the cpac conference. what did he say? he said 11 million democrats.

theory that the obama administration is deporting a saudi national who is behind the bombings. it is the wild wild west. we were saying -- somebody made a good point in the paper yesterday, that it makes you almost wish for the days of the 6:00 pm news where you had to wait, but at least it was reasonably accurate and responsible. >> yeah, and the "new york post" and fox news have gone the way of making it up as they go along. cnn has fallen in this trap of so interested in beating everybody else by a couple of seconds that they will put something on the air that they haven't confirmed. and then they will say this may be speculation, but let me tell you. just report what you are seeing. especially like right now. you have reporters on the scene, who are 2 or 300 yards away. what are you hearing from them. >> stephanie: david we're going to let you go to you have can get it right at the top of the hour. >> all right. thank, stephanie. >> stephanie: all right. honey. >> we can confirm that the attack was caused by martians i'm sorry, i am told that is not tr
is were tried in civilian courts. president obama back in 2009 said he no longer wanted to use the term enemy combatants. it's almost been removed from this administration's vocabulary even though we've heard it quite recently. we've heard this when there is a terrorist blot from conservative. they want to be sure that they're tried as an enemy combatant. not this time, and like everyone has been saying the case against this guy is so significant that they shouldn't have a hard time putting him away. >> cenk: joe, let's do it right. where they said, i didn't mirandaize him right away, and i used this public safety exception. but when the time had come, we're going to trial him in trials so liberals get off my back. >> the cynical view is is that's exactly what happened, but none of us are cynics. >> cenk: no, no. >> one thing you have to keep in mind. first, this is what conservatives do. the whole notion that this guy is some scary dude that we have to bring the full force of the law against him. this is what this arms argument does. it says that we as the united states government has
released a letter, nine-page letter to president obama asking the administration to reveal its legal basis for targeting killing and called for an end to the secrecy surrounding the use of drones. what's the purpose of the letter? >> this is the first time that all of the human rights groups in the united states including some that operate internationally as well all signed on to the same letter telling president obama that in our view, this is an illegal program. that this is a program that needs to end the way it's been operated. and that we also need to know a lot more about the program. >> bill: didn't the president say when john brennan's confirmation up and you were in, we talked about this before, that they were going to come forward with their guidelines and their policy and so we would all know when they used drones and who makes the decisions? >> well, they -- at that time, because to try to get john brennan confirmed to be c.i.a. director they let a few more pieces of the information about the drone program out. particularly to members of the senate intelligence committee. but o
